He stayed for several minutes with his wings closed - and only opened them briefly.

He's lovely - seeing more and more butterflies in the garden over the last few days.

We still have many meadow brown ones and white ones but I'm getting a bit worried as the butterfly bushes are all out but not many pretty ones around :-(
